A dig in the ribs for Louis van Gaal after he announced that after his remaining two seasons are up at Old Trafford, he will be retiring from the game. After apparently making a promise to his wife to step away, will the Dutchman actually depart, or will he do a Dick Advocaat and do a 360?
Anyway, bookmaker Bet365 has slapped a price of 2/7 on Louis van Gaal not winning the Premier League with Manchester United by the end of the 2016/17 season, opposing that at 5/2 that he does actually bring the league title to Old Trafford.
There have been a lot of changes at old Trafford in the summer and United are seen as stronger challengers this time around for the league title. But Bet365 have gone 1/2 that Van Gaal ends the season without a trophy in the bag from any competition.
The Red Devils are trading at 11/2 to win the 2015/16 Premier League and are at 17/2 to win the FA Cup, while trading at 8/1 to pick up the League Cup. Ryan Giggs is firm 15/8 favourite to replace Louis van Gaal as next Permanent Manchester United boss.
